A letter to a Wyoming State Rep:

Fulbright’s email:
Dear Representative,
I hope you are taking care of yourself during this busy session. I know it is a challenging, compressed time.
I am writing to express my grave concern about House Bill 105. Ample evidence has shown that schools and guns do not mix, and in particular, guns in the hands of amateurs/non-professionals is extremely dangerous, especially in any highly-charged situation. to expose our children to greater risk in their schools by encouraging more guns on campuses is something that we cannot allow.
My husband and I moved to Wyoming not too long ago. We believed it was a good place to raise children. With the recent and reactive expansion of gun laws and the profoundly serious dangers of fracking, we find we are seriously reconsidering our decision, which is wrenching to all of us. However, the safety of our family must come first. We are waiting to see what the legislature does this session. I know of other new-to-Wyoming families in similar contemplation. Your choices matter. It would be sad to see an exodus of educated, childrearing age adults from Wyoming as a result of poor lawmaking.
sincerely,
Rev. Audette Fulbright
Hunt’s response: Sock it to him! ;) :o
Rev. Fulbright,
I’ll be blunt. If you don’t like the political atmosphere of Wyoming, then by all means, leave. We, who have been here a very long time (I am proudly 4th generation) are quite proud of our independent heritage. I don’t expect a “mass exodus” from our state just because we’re standing up for our rights. As to your comments on fracking, I would point out that you’re basing your statement on “dangers” that have not been scientifically founded or proved as of yet.
It offends me to no end when liberal out-of-staters such as yourself move into Wyoming, trying to get away from where they came from, and then pompously demand that Wyoming conform to their way of thinking. We are, and will continue to be, a state which stands a head above the rest in terms of economic security. Our ability to do that is, in large part, to our “live and let live” mentality when it comes to allowing economic development, and limiting government oversight. So, to conclude, if you’re so worried about what our legislature is working on, then go back home.
Sincerely,
Hans Hunt

  2. If only I could donate a million dollars to Rep. Hunt...

    Wyoming really is the last best hope for a free territory within the Federal Reservation, isn't it?

    1. They seem to like Idaho and Montana, but I'd sure rather try southern Wyoming.

  4. I love Wyoming and can talk about it all day. Stayed at La Quinta Inn in Rock Springs twice last month and recommend it highly. From Flaming Gorge Reservoir to Devil's Tower to Yellowstone and back to the high Uintas it is a fabulous state. And the people are the stuff that once was America. Wyoming is what the Founders envisioned.

    1. Wait until spring. In Wyoming they say, "Let the Californians come. They all leave after the first winter."

    2. I bet, but what about the Southern part of Wyoming, are there any unusual areas where it is milder?

    3. Oh, yeah, in the cowboy bars. But they can get rowdy at times. In the winter we just scoot back and forth across I-80.

  5. The Rev Fulbright would fit better in the Rev Jacksons Chicago where there are endless gun laws. And she wouldn't have to deal with all those "cowboys".

      I get along with most of the Unitarians that I know, but not Obama supporters.

    2. Her last sermon was November 2012.....?

    3. I'll probably get a ride up to Cheyenne and talk to her. Her path from birth in Columbia SC to Roanoke VA and Asheville and then Wyoming gives us a lot in common. And these words from her autobiography I find sensible.

      "My upbringing was Southern, and I think that matters. There is something inescapable about “coming from” the South, a way it weaves itself into your very blood. The smell of the inlet, where I lived as a child, moves me inside in ways I never seem to expect. Certain colors grow brighter. Certain songs move me more deeply. I become quieter inside. The South has mountains and sea, flatlands and foothills. It moves slowly, speaks softly, prizes civility and subtle cruelty. Like any other, it is a place where one can grow up with easy good fortune, or the sharper, more ignorant turns of the human heart. I have seen all these things. In the South, there is still a strong tradition of “belonging.” Who are your people? Where is your place? Where do you come from? In the South, I have seen how past and present collide, sometimes well, sometimes not. It has made me prize certain things. I believe in recognizing the role of tradition, how it can comfort the human spirit, yet I do not idolize it. I believe in ties that hold us together, home-cooked meals, time for long conversation. I have learned the hard lessons of racism and intolerance, how they limit potential, destroy ability, and erase the authentic stories of human experience. Being at times surrounded by apathy and mindless adherence to dogma has put a fire in my belly. I wouldn’t trade that for the world. And flowing through all of this is the beauty of the land itself, which has given me gifts of strength and well-being it would be impossible to estimate."

      Hardly seems like my idea of a "leftist bitch carpetbagger." And I'd bet it wasn't her last sermon. I probably need to move on, because there are commenters here lately with whom I have little or nothing in common. I have outlived all my hate. Lee and Jackson were not haters and they are my heroes.

    4. I'm surprised by her words and would never think in a blue moon that she would be anti-gun. Strange.

    6. If she goes to Asheville, she'll be in liberal heaven.:)

    7. Yeah, you're right about Asheville but I know some great outlying towns. I would not move back to Asheville to live but it's closer to eastern shore oysters than where I am now. The Texas coast has great shrimp but no oysters. I dream of those seafood buffets in Myrtle Beach. Their name escapes me.

    8. it's closer to eastern shore oysters than where I am now.

  7. Mr. Smith I wanted to address your dismay with my remarks re: Fulbright. It galls me to no end those of some religious order who use their relationship with their god as leverage for political arguments. Fulbright does this. Her use of her religious title "reverend" draws attention and thus power to her beliefs. To her. It certainly works with you.
    Fulbright is a person, common in the leftist realm of Amerika today, who despise the freedom of personal defense. She hates the idea of American citizens owning personal defense weapons. However,I do not read comments by her denouncng the slaughter of human life in the womb. I can see where her priorities lie.
    She bemoans the modern method of extracting energy from the earth and the alleged dangers from fracking. However she continues to use the energy resulting from the hydraulic extraction of natural gas. Seems I left out "hypocrite" in my dscription of her.
    Lastly the woman Fulbright is a modern-day carpetbagger. She wants her new locale to mimic what she believes is correct and proper. She wants to impose her view of her world on others. She is what is wrong with this country today. Her use of her religious affiliaton angers me to no end.
    So in closing Mr. Smith I bid you adieu. Mr. Townsend has offered a venue for folks to express themselves here. For that I thank Mr.Townsend. I also thank him for the great amount of interaction he employs with folks here. You Mr.Smith are cut from the same cloth as Ms. Fulbright. What you read here, and it is my comments you don't like, annoys you. So like Ms Fulbright, you are free to move on where you don't have to endure that which you define as "hatred".
    Oh....and I stand by my description of Fulbright with one addition...."hypocrite".
